The Mad Queen (The Shadows bk.2)
Irrelia, one of the smallest kingdoms in Middle-Earth now harbours four of the most dangerous creatures. Their existence is known only to the Queen.
Thranduil is deeply troubled by the dream of his niece, Sairene. Unable to get any rest, he travels to Rivendell to consult Lord Elrond who has the gift of foresight. There he learns of the danger that awaits his niece and her people.
Sairene begins to learn the art of magic. Both the light and the dark. She claims at first that it is for the protection of herself and her kingdom but that soon changes when one of her biggest secrets is uncovered.
As her knowledge of magic grows, her mental state begins to deteriorate and her people seek the help of those who their Queen once turned to.
But why does the Queen suddenly and unexpectedly order the destruction of every mirror?
